The 11th Eduard Čech Lecture: Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, IHES

**Modern Geometry: from Local to Global, from Smooth to Rough, from Static to Dynamic**

Friday, 31 October 2014 at 9:30 a.m., in the main lecture hall of the Institute of Mathematics

Jean-Pierre Bourguignon is well known for his contributions to modern differential geometry. He was the president of the French Mathematical Society (1990–1992), and the second president of the European Mathematical Society (1995–1998). Since 1994, and until his retirement in August 2013, he has served mathematicians and physicists all over the world as director of the prestigious research centre Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques at Bures-sur-Yvette, close to Paris. Since 2014 he is the President of the European Research Council (ERC).

The lecture will be followed by a **panel discussion** about the ERC and mathematics in the Czech Republic.
